Details of this and other campaigns can be found on:
The Sussex Indian Punjabi Society, Gujarati Cultural Society, Indian Colours, Brighton & Hindu Community and Brighton Malayalee Association got together as a community with local charity Food Matters to make donations of money and food. Food Matters is enormously grateful for the donations of money, time, vehicles, food (and egg boxes) that have been given towards the city’s emergency food response.
